Nonprofit Friend: Millions from One

Millions from One is a nonprofit organization created to provide clean water and antimicrobial shoes to those in need. With a clear vision of providing sustainable solutions that meet basic living needs, they work to build community, promote education, and provide hope to the hopeless all over the world.

Millions From One

Water is at the heart of a daily crisis faced by almost a billion of the world’s most vulnerable people, especially children. This crisis threatens life and destroys livelihoods on a devastating scale. Nearly 90 percent of all diseases in the world are caused by unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene. This is a silent crisis experienced by the poor and tolerated by those with the resources, technology, and power to end it. To save millions of lives by providing long-term clean water, along with education and hygiene training, to those most in need across the world, Millions from One’s current outreaches include drilling deep-water wells and the manufacture of antimicrobial shoes—both giving life and filling needs to those in desperate situations.

Why shoes? Over 3 billion people live on the equivalent of $2.50 or less per day, meaning that many of life’s basic needs go unmet. The majority of the world’s poor must walk where they go, and an estimated 2 billion people are currently afflicted with parasitic diseases, most preventable with the right shoes. Currently serving 59 countries, Millions from One is changing the lives of millions one at a time.

Millions from One

In 2014, we helped Millions from One build a deep-water well in Burundi. This year, we’ll help provide basic necessities, along with clean water and antimicrobial shoes, to an orphanage in Nepal that was first devastated and then destroyed by earthquakes. Millions from One recently adopted this orphanage—quickly finding a new building so the children were no longer living in makeshift tents. We hope our combined efforts, with your help, will allow this orphanage and the children who live there continue to be successful.

We would like to partner with you, our customer, in an effort to provide necessary resources for Millions from One to continue their endeavors. On March 10, 2016, Wisteria will Give 10% of your entire purchase to Millions from One and you will Get 10% off your purchase. Use promo code MILLIONSFROMONE16 at checkout. Help out!

Nonprofit Friend: Visible Music College

In 2000, Founder and President Ken Steorts established Visible Music College. While touring worldwide with the Grammy-nominated Christian band Skillet, Ken observed young musicians with great promise but little instruction or guidance. His vision became clear, and Ken pioneered an educational center built on traditional and vocational models.

Today over 550 children are provided with an outstanding education across Lumin’s three campuses—East Dallas Community School (est. 1978), Lindsley Park Community School (est. 1999), and Bachman Lake Community School (est. 2009).

Lumin Education, and specifically the Lumin East Dallas Community School campus, holds a special place in Wisteria’s heart because Shannon worked there for a number of years. Shannon worked as Interim Assistant to the School Director and as a Toddler Teacher. Shannon said, “I just loved the close -knit family and neighborhood-feel of East Dallas Community School (EDCS). There is a strong sense of community even though the school is very diverse. A wonderful balance. Founder and Director Terry Ford’s vision and long-lasting leadership—along with amazing teachers—make EDCS one if the best examples of early childhood education in the nation!”
